St Cyrus and Stonehaven:

“What does the beach mean to you…?

Going to the beach at any time of year gives a complete change to all the senses. The salty seaweed smells the tingling of spray on the face, hard and soft sand underfoot are clear to imagine.  But at St Cyrus there was a visit from a great white egret on the estuary this autumn. The chance of seeing wigeon and teal returning, or long tailed sea ducks must surely add to the excitement of not quite knowing what might be seen. Watching the water in case whales or dolphins are passing keeps you alert.  But surely rolling up trouser legs and paddling in the shallows on beautiful summer evenings shouldn’t be missed.

Lunan Bay and Montrose:

“What does the beach mean to you…?

I love the Angus coastline because there is often no-one there; at Lunan Bay the sand is like the Bahamas; it’s your private beach  There are caves to explore, shells to pick up and sand dunes to slide on. Everything the children and I do!  There is a rock the shape of an elephant you will find nowhere else!  And there is St Cyrus beach too, again it too sounds like the Bahamas and it’s absolutely stunning. The beach behind the links at Montrose is special too; in short, something for everyone.

Newburgh and Sands of Forvie:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

Newburgh beach is easily accessible, with safe off road parking for dogs and children alike.  After a short walk through the sand dunes, you reach the estuary of the river Ythan and what a fantastic view that is!  You are greeted by flocks of wading birds and eider ducks calling to each other, mixed in with the barks of the seals basking on the banks of the river.  A ten minute walk takes you to the shore and all stresses and worries are swept away by the clean sea air.  I usually then walk back through the impressive sand dunes, climbing to the top to wonder at the unspoilt view of Newburgh beach.  Highly recommended to one and all!

Findhorn:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

Findhorn Beach is a special place – beautiful in any weather. It’s the most wonderful sight as you step across the dunes from the Bay … that first glimpse of golden sand then across the Moray Firth to the mountains beyond. If the tide is low the seals will be basking; if high, the sound of the waves meeting the shore is wonderfully energising. It’s a place of freedom, for slowing down and nurturing simplicity. I always leave the beach gloriously refreshed….and our children leave with happy sandy faces, mindful of simple family fun!

Banff:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

A Beach to me is somewhere to Explore,
Somewhere you’ve not been, or looked Before,
An adventure for me, that’s what I Enjoy
A walk with my dog, oh wait come back Boy!
My family and I making sandcastles with Moats,
Relax sit back, and look at the Boats,
Collecting seashells, or finding caves with Treasure,
There is no rush, it’s all at your Leisure,
Its time for a picnic, or a whippy Ice cream!
The beach to me, is much more than the Sand and the Sea!
